Can We Accept Mel Gibson As An Actor?

December 24, 2011

This is likely a little late, but I just had the pleasure of enjoying Mel Gibson’s performance in The Beaver. There is an honesty and a sadness in his performance that is (truthfully) lacking from George Clooney’s heralded performance in The Descendants. While Clooney is fine, I felt like something was missing. Maybe it has […]

Movie Review: Win-Win

December 19, 2011

Paul Giamatti has long flown under the radar, giving “average guy” performances that don’t really ignite the box office, yet receive critical acclaim. Win-Win is another one of those films, sadly, after being left to die at the box office with only 10M in grosses. But that’s 10M for a film that never received wide […]

Movie Review: Tree Of Life

December 17, 2011

Admittedly, I missed Tree of Life in theatres. The likely winner of the Oscar for Best Cinematography is probably best seen on a large screen, not my 46incher at home. However, I at least made the attempt to watch it in bluray hi-def, so there’s something. But, Tree of Life is nothing if not visual, […]

Oscar Roundup- The Race So Far

December 16, 2011

  Believe it or not, I’ve actually been tracking every awards, every top 10 list, and so on for Awards Season. Based on these picks, I’ve come up with a basic “rundown” of how the race is shaping up. You can’t trust Oscar pundits out there, because they’re still shilling their own picks. Take AwardsDaily, […]

X-Factor Top 7 Rankings

December 1, 2011

Drew- She’s hardly the first one to slow down Billie Jean and strip it down. However, it worked for her voice. She’s becoming an American Teen version of Adele. I’m still concerned that she can’t sing uptempo at all. Or even a moderate tempo song. Paula was right. Avril Lavigne would be great for Drew. […]

X-Factor Top 9 Rankings

November 23, 2011

9) Chris Rene- It’s nice to see him distracting America from Astro’s drama by completely murdering and shitting all over a Beatles song, and then trying to cover it up with Young Homie. I might have a heart attack if he isn’t in the bottom 3 next week. 8) Lakoda Rayne- It’s becoming clear these […]

X-Factor Top 10 Rankings

November 17, 2011

10) Stacey Francis- Her frog noises are getting on my nerves. I’m not a fan of Stacey, and I think she’ll be going home. I think it’s her and Lakoda Rayne, and I doubt the judges pick Paula’s group again 3 weeks in a row. That’s just mean. Plus, her stank face while receiving bad […]

X-Factor Top 11 (My Rankings)

November 10, 2011

11) Stereo Hoggz- I think their performance this week was full of showmanship, for sure. But they were singing in unison a lot, and it didn’t sound great. After taking a trip to the Bottom 2 this week, I’m predicting they repeat, and go home. 10) Lakoda Rayne- Landslide didn’t do them any favors, and […]

X-Factor Top 12 Thoughts

November 3, 2011

My Rankings of Last Night’s performances: 12) InTENsity- I’m done with Glee-lite. Can we all just finally agree this was not a good idea (or at least way too many people?) 11) Lakoda Rayne- Did not sound good last night, and they’re also struggling with staying together as a group. 10) Chris Rene- I like […]

A&E Renews ‘The Glades’

October 18, 2011

I don’t know if you’re aware, but A&E occasionally airs original programming. It’s this revelation that might shock you when you find out that The Glades has been renewed for a third season. Yes, it’s already played for 2 summers now, and will return next summer. That’s a big deal for A&E, who is more […]
